Challenge PPSC # 1 - Guest Designer!

My "Mission Organization" up cycled tins were chosen as the Playing in Paradise #113 winner! Exciting to win and they ask you to guest design an upcoming challenge. How cool is that!
This was a bit of a challenge! It was a sketch for a scrapbook layout or a card. I am not a scrapbooker or a card maker but we all need to step out of our comfort zone once in awhile!

I chose to make a card. I had some leftover manila pieces that I had colored with Distress paint for Tim's April Tag (you can see mine here). Die cut the gears and added some of the Stampendous "aged bronze" embossing powder. Love these!
Thought this might make a good Congratulations card. New job or a move maybe??
Thank you Scrapbooker's Paradise for giving us all these terrific challenges.

Mini Mini

Have been wanting to make this adorable Mini Mini for awhile. I found the tutorial over at "The Gentleman Crafter". Thank you Jim!

I decided to use some travel inspired papers - "World Traveler" by Recollections

The pockets are small coin envelopes - 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"

I will add tags to the pockets but wanted to enter Simon Says Stamp & Show this week.

This is such a cute mini, I will be making more of these!
